It’s like there was an invisible revolving door…
From Chicago Tribune:
Rogers Park man already in jail on a charge of trying to assault a woman who was pushing an infant in a stroller has been charged with attacking a McDonald’s employee in a restaurant washroom the day before, according to prosecutors and records.
Hassan Flowers, 25, was ordered held in lieu of $300,000 bail in Cook County Bond Court today in connection with the attack June 8 at a McDonald’s at 6740 N. Clark St. Flowers already is charged in a similar attack that took place in an alley nearby June 9, after he had been released following a misdemeanor battery arrest in the attack at the McDonald’s.
That day, the employee spotted Flowers outside before going into the restroom to change the toilet paper, prosecutors said.
While she was in a handicapped stall, Flowers, of the 6700 block of North Bosworth Avenue, entered the stall and grabbed her waist from behind, according to Assistant State’s Attorney Gordon Runk.
Flowers locked the door to the stall and tried to assault her, prosecutors said.
A manager heard the woman screaming, entered the restroom and watched Flowers flee, Runk said in court. He was arrested about 4:40 p.m. and initially charged with misdemeanor battery, but released in less than a day, according to police and court records.
The next day, June 9, Flowers was arrested and charged with attempted criminal sexual assault when he attacked a woman who was pushing an infant in a stroller about 11 a.m. in the 1700 block of West Pratt Boulevard, close to the McDonald’s. He forced the woman to the ground, caused the stroller to flip and touched the woman through her clothing.
Two witnesses heard the woman yelling for help and held Flowers until police arrived.
